Atsu receives inspirational award – Whether you rate him or not, this is brilliant..

Newcastle United’s Christian Atsu has won the Cyrille Regis Players Award following his brilliant charity work helping individuals, orphanages and schools back in his native Ghana.

The award celebrates the work done by black players around the globe, rewarding the likes of Atsu for being such role models in the football industry.

Here’s what he’s had to say after receiving the award – one that has been won by the likes of Chris Hughton and Les Ferdinand in the past:

“I feel very honoured to receive this Cyrille Regis Players Award from the Football BlackList for my work with Arms Around The Child.

“Thanks to everyone involved for your continued support and for recognizing the work we are all trying to do in Ghana.”

No matter what you may think of Atsu as a footballer on the pitch, his work off the field is inspirational.

Hats off to him. There’s so much negative press about modern footballers in this days and age – and rightly so at times – but Atsu’s efforts have been rightfully celebrated here.
